Occu­pa­tional haz­ards - Police said a man who allegedly stabbed another man and lists his occu­pa­tion as “drug dealer” was arrested on a pro­ba­tion vio­la­tion. The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said Deaun­dre Barnes, 22, allegedly stabbed Thomas Grippo, 23, at a home dur­ing a fight that was sparked when Barnes told Grippo and his girl­friend to “shut up.” Grippo told police he didn’t real­ize he’d been stabbed until he arrived home and dis­cov­ered he was bleed­ing. Police said Barnes was sen­tenced to five years of drug offender pro­ba­tion in June and is listed by the Florida Depart­ment of Cor­rec­tions as an “absconder/fugitive. ”
